GSP and Destination Imagination

Drew recently had the opportunity to meet and inspire a group of students from Destination ImagiNation. DI is an exhilarating educational activity in which students work in teams to solve Challenges and present their solutions at Tournaments. Teams are tested to think on their feet, work together and devise original solutions that satisfy the requirements of the Challenges. Participants gain more than just basic knowledge and skills- they learn to unleash their imaginations and take unique approaches to problem solving. Annually, 72,000 children in morethan 6,000 schools participate in DI. This year DI expects to have 15,000 teams in 50 states and 30 countries around the world. (From their website.)

The students are all making a puppet this year as one of their challenges. They had a great time meeting Drew and got lots of great ideas!

Drew was featured in the NC Destination Imagination newsletter. You can read the article on their website.

We wish the students from Destination Imagination the best of luck in all their puppetry pursuits! And don't forget to send us pictures!
